Greetings from Nebraska!

It seems that every time I turn a pen the wood becomes my favorite wood - at least for the day. This is the first time I've turned Ambrosia Maple. It turned easily and finished nicely. I filled the two Ambrosia Beetle holes with Ebony Timbermate wood filler. Beetle holes are almost unavoidable in Ambrosia Maple as it is the Ambrosia Beetle that carries the sap infusing fungus responsible for the dark coloration. The blanks were pressed into a standard Chrome Junior Gentleman rollerball.

Regards,
Dave

Here is the Pen:
